Limitations of the data

The businesses covered are not an exhaustive list of all Māori enterprises. Stats NZ focus on businesses they can readily identify as Māori enterprises. Some examples of the type of enterprises known to be missed include small businesses with an average turnover of less than $30,000, or those with fewer than six employees.
These statistics are provisional, and updates in the series may be incorporated in subsequent releases.
The Business Operations Survey has limitations due to small sample sizes and sample design.

About this dataset

This data is derived from the Business Operations Survey, which is used to collect performance measures from New Zealand businesses to better understand the practices and behaviours they undertake which may have an impact on their performance. These statistics feed into policy and microdata research that helps identify the current situation of the New Zealand business environment, as well as potential areas of improvement. The survey covers all businesses in New Zealand that have 6 or more employees, and have been active for one year or more.
